about "Cracked windshield.":
I don't know what climate you live in but if it is hot as Houston is then
there is a greater propensity for windshields to crack.
Also if you live in an area where road debris occurs a lot faster than the
roads are swept then there is a greater risk of cracked windshields.
That said, I never lad a cracked windshield while I lived in Canada. Since
moving to Houston, I had two - one on my old 2002 Elantra GT and one on my
Dodge Grand Caravan. Moreover, here in Houston cracked windshields do not
favour any one brand. They happen to all cars.
Moral of story - Hyundai glass is no more inferior than any other. People
drive faster on debris-strewn roads causing misery for all.

Just had to have the windshield on my 2001 Elantra replaced. Hit a small
rock, or chip, on the freeway, $50 deductible. This is the second
replacement, had to have it replaced about 18 months ago, also due to a
flying stone on the freeway.
Have owned different cars for over 50 years and have never had this
misfortune before. The windshield installer says it is because inferior
glass and manufacturing techniques are the cause.
